Funeral program (with inserts) of Adrian DeVries, Grand Rapids, Michigan, citing death on 6 January 2007; DeVries Family Papers, digitized and privately held by Miriam Robbins Midkiff, [ADDRE
SS FOR PRIVATE USE,] Spokane, Washington . 2010.
The funeral card--or should I say funeral program--of my maternal (step) grandfather Adrian DeVRIES differs greatly from those of his family members featured the last month. His is a mini-biography, complete with photographs from his childhood to his elder years. The size of it is much larger as well. Included in the program was a lined sheet in which extended family members and friends could write their favorite memories of Adrian to leave with the family. Also included for the mourner's convenience were three copies of hymns which were sung at Adrian's funeral, one of which, In the Garden, is my favorite.
Thanks to Dee Akard Welborn for this great Friday theme! Dee encourages others to highlight their funeral card collection on the first Friday of each month. Since I have so many, I've decided to highlight mine every Friday.
